Susanne Pirkl

Assistant to the Management

After my education, I was able to gain experience as an assistant in retail and wholesale as well as in the real estate industry.

At RBS, I support the management in all office matters as well as in accounting.

Data protection/data security is important, but not yet perceived as such everywhere - we want to raise awareness.

As an employee of RBS, I'm happy knowing I can make a significant contribution to the progress of compliance management in Austria. Companies and organisations make use of our innovative products and solutions, which strengthens the respective security standards in the company and the region.
